A New Companion says………
Read the impressions of a recently Exalted candidate in our Province….
“The Royal Arch had been suggested by many brethren and I eagerly put my name forward. Once the evening arrived I was excited and slightly nervous but in a good way and I was greeted with nothing but assurance from my soon-to-be Companions. The exaltation was a truly unique experience. The Temple was magically transformed and the ritual was performed to a very high standard. It washed over me in a spiritual, uplifting way.
I would say to any Brother who is thinking about joining the Royal Arch, “don’t think; just put your name forward!” Believe me; it’s that good! “
